Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance launches across Europe on February 22nd, but developer Platinum Games already has hopes that another Raiden spin-off could be on the cards. Get the quotes below.
Speaking with Siliconera, Kojima Productions’ creative producer Yuki Korekado and Platinum Games’ director Atsushi Inaba discussed the potential for more Raiden-centric games, with Inaba expressing keen interest in a Platinum-developed follow up.
Korekado said, “In Rising, we got to see Raiden grow as a character and develop as a person, Beyond that, within the Metal Gear universe there are a lot of characters and stories. Within that we were able to show the value of the universe and expand on it. We were able to prove we can create branches to explain more deep stories within the universe.”
Inaba added, “I really think I was able to see Raiden grow independently and strong as a character and as a man. To be part of that was an honor. Moving forward, if Kojima Productions feels that another Raiden game is needed I would love to be a part of making Raiden’s next growth.”
